There is nothing like a delicious milkshake to chug down (wait, you don’t chug yours?… ok…).
But the problem is when you don’t want to eat tons and tons of milkshake everyday because of the amount of refined sugar in there.
There are good things about milkshakes, too: good fats (in fact, studies have shown that women who ate full fat ice cream once a week had less fertility problems than those who didn’t.. Was it the ice cream or the happiness in eating the ice cream that made them more fertile? The world may never know), pure joy, you know the deal.
At one point in my life, I was overly concerned with everything being super duper healthy. I basically wouldn’t touch refined sugar with a ten foot pole, and I was also a vegan for seven years (which ended for health reasons). So I have this crazy repertoire of things I eat that are totally not normal, but so delicious.
Now I am more into moderation, but I still do care about my nutrition greatly (and it’s often one of the first things I’ll discuss with clients when they are trying to improve hormonal health).
Since nutrition and deliciousness are both so important, I thought I’d re-inaugurate my video making with a delicious banana milkshake recipe.
I love this milkshake because it is super simple to make, it has no sugar, it has good fats (whole milk), it’s great on hot days, it’s good for kids, and it’s so frickin’ yummy.
The milkshake is naturally sweet, but if you feel like you want it sweeter for some reason do NOT, I repeat do not, put fake sugar in it. Try maple syrup, honey, dates, coconut sugar, or rapadura.
Watch the video for the whole recipe and technique:
Freeze bananas, blend with milk and vanilla, consume! (BTW, if you don’t drink milk for whatever reason use coconut milk).
